[audio]Podcast 7.1: Visions of the End - What is Apocalypticism? - Philip A. Harland
In this first episode I begin to define apocalypticism with reference to (1) a worldview or ideology focused on an imminent end of the world, (2) social groupings that live out that worldview, and (3) a type writing or genre of literature (e.g. the book of Daniel in the Hebrew Bible and John's Revelation.in the New Testament). This is part of series 7 (Visions of the End: Apocalypticism) of the Religions of the Ancient Mediterranean podcast.

The next episode examines the so called "Book of Watchers" in 1 Enoch chapters 1-36 in more detail.

[audio]Podcast 7.2: Origins part 1 - Ancient Near Eastern Combat Myths - Philip A. Harland
Here I go back to the earliest Mesopotamian mythologies (starting about 3000 BCE) about the gods in order to trace a recurring pattern -- labeled the "combat myth" by scholars -- that later came to play a role in Judean (Jewish) apocalypticism. In particular I explore stories about a chaotic god or monster threatening the order of the universe and a young god's success in slaying the monster to restore order.
